Would you like to keep your teeth for longer, have fresh breath, improve your oral hygiene and enjoy a winning smile?
At our Fareham dental cleaning clinic, the hygiene therapy is delivered by highly experienced dental hygienists, Hayley Jones & Sue Woodward. The aim is to remove plaque from your teeth that may have built up in certain areas. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned and polished with special instruments and pastes, this process is also known as scaling and polishing.
Why do you need a dental hygienist?
An important aspect of the hygienist’s role is to show you how to look after your teeth so they remain free from plaque & any signs of gum disease. You will be advised on the best brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using interdental brushes.
If you have a bridge, denture, orthodontic treatment, or dental implant, you will have specific hygiene needs that our hygienists will be able to assist you with. It is recommended that you come in for regular dental cleaning visits to ensure your mouth stays clean and healthy.
